Leg 16 – 20th July

Starting at Chilcompton and Ending at Bath

The Days Journey

Leg 16 13.75 miles 850 feet.


An earlier than normal start so us off with out a worry, we opened the Motorhome door at about 6am to see Malcolm or as we now call him Sheikh Malc Mohammad Vanman had just gone , the Van, the lot just gone, after trying to remember if aliens had popped round last night after victims to carry out research on, we decided to give him a call, remember this was 6 am, us still a little sleepy eyed, though we were having an early start, was shocked by Mo’s absence, so we rang him, but Mo was all ready in Bath, parked outside next camp stop, the owner must have had a real fright, good job he had no Rucksack on.

Feeling guilty we packed up double quick and got walking, check out one of he photos for a record by 12 am . It will be difficult to beat but it’s a bit like a PB; there to be shot at!

A real shout out to Sheikh Mo with out his help this would be a real tough ask, so glad we have him on board.
At Bath now sat here writing this, the compass says we head North tomorrow, oh my I can almost see factory chimneys Smoke and coal dust!!

Track of the day classic

21 plus mile day tomorrow – will be a big one but fingers crossed.
